I think War Thunder user skins should be visible to all players (and you can report bad user skins)
Basically, you can choose to show your user skin through a setting in the User skins section and choose to see User skins through Game settings.
How this would be done is you would temporarily download the User’s skin through a temporary file on the server and then display that skin in game! So, on match launch the client would upload the skin to the server aswell.
Everyone would put dicks, swastikas, anime stuff and other pretty stuff on their tanks. You can also make airplanes invisible. Report system require someone to review reports and decide if skin is off or not, which is impossible.
With the amount of decals and decorations like the anime pillows already in the game, i dont see the issue. its already there. I personally dont get why they dont add more skins. It would just make them more money. Just make it all fictional so ppl that dont want to see it can hide it.
Buying fictional skins and decals in the workshop as I found out is 99% of the time pointless as the game by default has skin viewing settings to historical/semihistorical and most people don’t know about it to change it, why would I ever buy a fictional workshop skin use those decals if only I can see it 90% of the time, just get a user skin at that point. It’s a shame really, a lot of really cool gaijin made decals that you could see before are null and void automatically
